2020 Parents Welcome Letter to Post 8 Baseball

Friday, March 6, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to Post 8 Baseball!  Your child is joining an outstanding program that has seen state championship teams at both the Legion and Teener level in just the past few years.  We have been blessed with dedicated coaches and a community of supportive parents!  The purpose of this letter is to welcome you and your family to our program as well as provide some important information as you prepare for your first year with Post 8.  There is a lot of information, so I apologize in advance for the length but want to make sure that we are successfully communicating with all of you.

A.  Social Media/Electronic Communication – Below are great places to stay apprised of everything Post 8!

1 -  Post 8 Website – http://www.post8baseball.com/

2 - Post 8 Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/Pierre-Post-8-Baseball-1440387532677785/

3 -   Emails – Be sure that Coach White has your email address and let him know if you are not receiving emails.

B.  Fund Raising Events – The Post 8 Board takes pride in the efforts we have made to keep the costs of playing baseball reasonable.  We will employ between 10-12 coaches as well as provide transportation to all out of town games during the week.  These costs are significant, so we work hard to find larger fundraising activities to support our athletes.  These are only successful with the help from our parents and players.  Below are a couple upcoming events for which we will need assistance.

1 -   Pancake Feeds – Beginning in November we serve five pancake breakfasts per year at the Legion Cabin.  Our last one for this year is scheduled for Saturday, March 21st.  There will be a Sign-Up Genius sent out for volunteers.

2 -   Roast Beef Feed – Monday, May 11th at the Legion Cabin.  Each player will be asked to bring a different type of dish for this event.

C.  Raffle Tickets

1 -   This is the biggest requirement we make of our athletes! Again, to limit the financial burden to our families we have given the players raffle tickets to sell instead of tying the entire cost into a registration fee. 

2 -   Raffle ticket turn in will be Tuesday, May 19th at Hyde Stadium from 5:30 to 7:30. Players are not allowed to compete in games until all tickets are sold and the money turned in. 

D.   Season Passes – Family season passes can be purchased for $50 which gives you entry to all home Post 8 baseball games except for tournaments.

E.   Hitting League – Will begin on March 30th/31st and run Mondays and Tuesdays for four weeks (through April 21st) Coaches will work with the athletes in the basement of the Reinke-Gray Wealth Management Building which is located at 1714 Lincoln Avenue.  Times and groups will be forthcoming, and we strongly encourage our players to sign up for this to get a head start on the skills necessary to be an effective hitter!

F.    Parent Meeting – This meeting will be Tuesday, April 14th at the Chamber of Commerce.  Parents of 13/14’s will meet at 7:00 and 15/16, Jr. Legion, and Legion parents will meet at 7:45.

G.    Bussing – Post 8 will provide transportation to all out of town games during the week.  Transportation for all weekend games and tournaments must be provided by the parents.

H.    Parent Involvement – Parent volunteers are ESSENTIAL to our program.  Each team will be looking for a team parent as well as volunteers to assist with games to work the Kelley Field concession stand, run Game Changer, work the gate, prepping the field, selling 50-50 tickets, and announcing.

I.    Player Expectations – All players, coaches, and fans are expected to conduct themselves with dignity and respect!

J.    Practices will begin on May 4th for all teams from U13 thru Junior Legion!!!

We look forward to having you and your child be a part of Post 8 Baseball!  Thank you for parenting and for your support of our program.

Sincerely,

Post 8 Board of Directors

Pierre U14 Teeners win 2019 State U14 Baseball Tournament

The Pierre Post 8 U14 Teeners won the State A Baseball Tournament by beating Yankton in the final game of the Gold Bracket Division by score of 10 - 0. As the visiting team, Pierre scored early in the game and with solid pitching and stellar defense shut down the Yankton scoring machine. The winning pitcher for Pierre was Brady Getz, completing 3 innings, while allowing  just two hits and striking out two. Jackson Edman came in in the bottom of the 4th and sealed the deal for the Teeners.

The U14 Teeners team is coached by Connor Gerber and Landon Badger.

Post 8 Roast Beef Fundraiser - Hometown Hero announced!

Monday, April 15, 2019

Post 8 Baseball Roast Beef Fundraiser and Home Town Hero

Post 8 baseball is pleased to announced that we will be hosting our Annual Roast Beef Fundraiser on Thursday, April 25th from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM at the American Legion Cabin in Pierre.

In the tradition of the Roast Beef Fundraiser, we also present our Home Town Hero award to those individuals that have contributed in either time, talent, or financially over the years to the Post 8 Baseball program. This years recipients are Dr. James Trimble and the Russ Snyder Memorial Scholarship donors. 

This is the year the 20th anniversary of the Russ Snyder Memorial Scholarship which award aids Post 8 players and their collegiate aspirations.

Russ Snyder played Post 8 Legion in 1974 and 1975, went on to become a two-time all-conference selection at the University of South Dakota.

Dr. James Trimble was a teammate of Russ. At Snyder’s funeral in 2000, he and others wanted to do something positive in memory of his love for the game and it was then Dr. Trimble came up with the scholarship to honor Russ’ hard work, leadership and dedication. Russ died at the age of 43.

Please join us for a great meal, including roast beef sandwiches, Bob's baked beans, coleslaw, chips, desserts and soda. We hope to see you there.
